WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

We are looking for fiction and non-fiction of the highest quality. We are keen to receive literary and commercial fiction. We are also looking for non-fiction, particularly creative non-fiction, travel writing, memoir and nature writing. We do not represent poetry, plays, children’s books or YA.

SUBMITTING YOUR WORK:

To submit your work, please e-mail submissions@laxfieldliterary.com following these guidelines:

1. Please include the title of your work in the subject line of the email.

2. Please send your work in a Word document, and ensure your contact details and word count are clearly visible on the title page.

  • For fiction, please include a covering letter telling us a little about yourself, a synopsis in a separate Word document and the first three chapters of the book.
  • For non-fiction, please include a covering letter with some information about yourself and the background to the book, a one-page summary of the project, a table of contents (or chapter outline) and two or three sample chapters.

We will endeavour to get back to you within four weeks of receiving your work. Please note that due to the number of requests we receive, we are unable to provide feedback on unsuccessful submissions.

Submissions are open year-round, except for the month of August.

If you have particular requirements or disabilities that mean you need additional support with the submissions process, please contact us at info@laxfieldliterary.com so that we can discuss an alternative way of receiving your submission.
